"file" does not exist

Postby dainelli » 2020-02-17 10:52

I am currently running debian 10, and I am unable to open certain files. These are .xlsx, .pdf, docx, etc files. Some of them do start with libreoffice and/or WPS, but there are others that do not start and the only message is "xyz.file does not exist". I know for a fact that they do exist because most of them are synced over the cloud and I'm able to run these files under Windows 10. Does anyone know how to make debian recognize these files?

Thanks in advance

Filenames with spaces, improperly quoted?

Can you post examples.

Which cloud solution are you referring to?
How is the cloud folder accessed?

Altough one may think it's because of the"??", I can open other (.pdf) files within the same folder.

I am using MEGA, which uses synced folders.

The filename does have spaces, but this hasn't been a problem before.

I found the problem. Turns out if you change the standard program that should open a file type, Debian doesn't recognize it.
